The life and sketches of Sir John Herschel--one of the most noted astronomers of the 19th century--are documented in this unparalleled contribution to the artistic and historical records of the Cape of Good Hope. An accomplished artist, Herschel used an optical device known as a camera lucida to create more than one hundred exquisite sketches depicting the landscapes of South Africa. Fully reproduced sketches coupled with narrative text and extensive background material place these unique illustrations in their historical and geographical context.
